Thuri., June 2.1977 GREELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE 27 Vietnam, u.S. continue talks By ARTHUR HIGBEE PARIS (UPI) - Vietnam and the United States today held three and a half hours of talks at the American embassy aimed at normalizing relations and promised to meet again Friday for further discussion. Outside the embassy, Vietnamese refugees demonstrated peacefully against the talks, carrying signs reading, "Stop Communist Vermin in Vietnam," and "Set Free Vietnamese Religious Leaders." Vietnamese Deputy Foreign Minister Phan Hien and U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Richard Holbrooke emerged from their meeting at the with .broad grins. Hien, 59, said with a smile, "This is the first lime Vietnamese have been to this building." Holbrooke told reporters, "We met for three and a half hours. I'm sorry I can't say anything today but we'll be meeting again tomorrow mor- .ning." Hien added, "We continued talks in the same atmosphere as in the month of May." Holbrooke escorted Hien to a waiting limousine while pointing out architectural features of the embassy on the historic Place de la Concorde. On his arrival for the talks, Hien drove past his protesting countrymen without a glance and into the embassy courtyard, where he alighted from his ancient black Mercedes and shook hands with Holbrook, 36. The major issues facing the two countries at the talks are Washington's insistence that American servicemen missing in action be traced and Hanoi's demand thai the United States pay war reparations. The two-day first round of talks May 3-4 was held at the pagoda-shaped Vietnamese Embassy in a residential district near the Bois de Boulogne. Since that round ended, both countries have engaged in a public quarrel over Hanoi's demands for reparations and Washington's flat refusal to comply. Hanoi's claim is based on a letter President Nixon wrotethe same week the short-lived Vietnam ceasefire was signed in Paris in early 1973. The Carter administration says this promise was nullified by the collapse of the ceasefire and the final North Vietnamese push into South Vietnam that finally ended the fighting April 30, 1975.

(AP Wirephoto) Abortion advocates say child support costs more By SARA FRITZ WASHINGTON (UPI) Abortion advocates estimate taxpayers will be forced to shoulder a multi-billion dollar burden of support for unwanted children if Congress outlaws 550 million spent annually for Medicaid abortions. The prediction came.Wednes- day from a bipartisan coalition of pro-abortion groups. The -group seeks to defeat an antiabortion provision in the new Labor Department-HEW appropriations bill, scheduled for a vote in the House June 15. A simlar provision, outlawing the use of Medicaid funds for abortions, passed Congress last .year but was blocked in the courts. The Supreme Court was expected to rule soon on the issue as it applies to the states. The coalition ridiculed a recent letter in which Sens. Richard Schweiker, R-Pa., William Proxmire, D-Wis., and Thomas Eagleton, D-Mo., argued for re-enactment of the provision on grounds it would force the court to clarify the constitutionality of the ban on federal expenditures for abortion. Members of the coalition, led by the National Women's Political Caucus and_ feminist leader Gloria Steinem, argued the provision is unconstitutional, depriving poor, dependent-women of their right to an abortion. The group said one-third of all abortions -- or about 300,000 each year -- are funded by Medicaid at a annual cost to the government of $50 million. They said the average abortion costs $150 in the first trimester and $350 in the second. This compares to child delivery costs between $550 and $800, and an estimated $35,261 for a low income family to raise a child to age 18. . Using these figures, the coalition predicted the cost for Medicaid and welfare services for unwanted children "could eventually rise as high as $10.5 billion annually."
